December 13 - Cocktails and Cosmos: Gravitational Dance and Swing Dancing
Join us for swing dancing in the INTUITIVE® Planetarium lobby before heading in to learn about the gravitational “dance” between objects with mass and the power it has over our daily lives. Gravity enables you to stand on the Earth’s surface and also keeps our solar system in its current orbit within the Milky Way. Come explore the dance between partners and this unseen force that attracts everything in the universe. Doors open at 6:15 p.m., and the show begins at 7 p.m. Arrive early and bring your best moves!
